Welcome to The Home Design School!
If you're anything like me, you're a big fan of interior design and you have a passion for making your home beautiful. You watch all of the home design programmes from The Great Interior Design Challenge (UK) to HGTV's Fixer Upper (US).
You probably have tonnes of magazines with glossy pictures of your dream lifestyle and a Pinterest board crammed with images of your 'One Day' home.
But what happens if you are struggling to make your dream décor happen?
What if your colours just don't quite look right, your styling looks amateurish and your walls don't look finished?
If only you had someone who could unlock the secrets to a beautifully designed home, someone who perhaps had struggled in the way that you do, and had found how to fix their problem.
Well, that's exactly what I do!
I'm Kate Hatherell and I help people to unlock the secrets to creating a beautiful home.
I totally get where you're coming from because I also used to be a frustrated decorator. I had all of these ideas and dreams but I just didn't seem to be able to bring them into reality.
In spite of watching all the TV programmes, reading all the magazines and listening to interior designers, I just couldn't get it right!
With every mistake I made, I felt more and more like a failure for having wasted so much money, time and effort, and I became convinced that I just wasn’t very creative.
So I set about trying to work out what was going wrong, and why my best laid plans were failing. Over the next couple of years, I hired two interior designers, I read every decorating book I could get my hands on, and I even studied for two separate diplomas in interior design!
Fast forward to today, and I am now living in a beautiful, cosy family home that I love. I have finally cracked the secret to creating a cohesive and beautiful home, and I’m going to share everything I have learned with you.
So breathe a sigh of relief because I'm here to share with you everything I have learned about colour, space, accessories, styling and much more. Together, we'll make your dream home a reality.
